4:35 a.m. – Why am I awake?

  • Is something wrong with me? I should not be awake at this hour. The rest of the world is fast asleep. But then that’s the point I am trying to prove here – I am not like the rest of the world. For as long as I can remember, the dream had been running ahead of me. This time I have taken the lead. I am one step ahead of the dream and I will keep pressing ahead. Oh I am so done with sleeping. I am done with dreaming. I am done with watching the show with my nose pressed against the glass. I am now swinging the door open and stepping inside the arena. It has begun – the countdown to MY show. I am counting months, weeks, days, hours…and I will make them count soon.
